Ghaziabad: A local advocate has filed an
application before the special CBI court judge A K Singh,
requesting him to pass orders in the Rs 6.58 crore Provident
Fund scam in Hindi and not in English.
Advocate Sanjay Tyagi, in another application yesterday,
also objected to the use of the word "respected judges" by the
court for the six accused judges in the scam, saying it is
gross violation of the Article 14 of the Constitution which
calls for equality before law.

Tyagi filed the application after Singh did not heed to
his earlier request and again passed order in the case in
English. "The judge passed the order in English language which
is unreadable for me," he told agency.
Yesterday, the court granted bail to all the six accused
retired judges in the Provident Fund scam. The bail was
granted on the basis of two sureties of fixed assets worth of
rupees one lakh each.
